COLOUR NOTES

Printer Ink colour wheel are dyed with magenta pink, turquoise and gold. These three colours are used in different amounts to create the 12 mini skeins, ensuring the colours work well together. Contrast with black for maximum colour pop, or with greys for a more subtle effect.

Hand dyed yarn varies between skeins and batches. Please ensure you buy enough yarn to complete your project and alternate between skeins for multi skein projects.
